Last night I read something that put into words, my exact feelings. Feelings that I have at times tried to walk away from or discard. Its hard to be different. Its hard to swim against modern current thought all the time. But, what I read last night felt like "coming home" in thought.
First I read this from Wikipedia, not always a very reliable source but this struck me as beautiful in so many ways and it pushed me on to read more, find more, examine more and in the entire process, cement in me what I had known for years, "Simplicity" is my road home.
This morning I read these words from. . .The Quaker Testimonies
At this time of year, when I head to the stores for that perfect Christmas gift for a loved one, its good to head out the door of the house with this mindset of simplicity.
